DESCRIPTION OF WORK: Numerous instructors are required to assist the Course Professor by teaching content in the Health Equity components of this second year MScPT course. The overall learning outcomes of the course are focused on the necessary, advanced level skills and behaviours for development, use and evaluation of client-centered, evidence-based physiotherapy services across the continuum of care, and across the lifespan, among diverse communities.
In the Health Equity component of the course, students explicitly explore the historical trauma and impacts of racism, discrimination and colonialism on health and wellness, combined with the implications for physiotherapy practices and policies. The focus in this series is on learning about the Black Canadian community, particularly the history and unique experience of African Nova Scotians (Part 1), and on learning about the history and unique experiences of Indigenous People, including the Mi’kmaq (Part 2). Learning outcomes include: knowledge of colonialism as a root cause of inequities; knowledge and skills to help address health inequities experienced by members of these communities at personal, institutional and population levels; knowledge and skills for the ability to co-develop health-promoting programs through two-eyed seeing; and knowledge and skills for development and provision of inclusive, client-/community-centered physiotherapy practices and policies.
The Health Equity classes are offered Tuesday and Thursday afternoon from 1:00 - 2:30pm, supplemented by asynchronous learning activities using on-line platforms such as Microsoft TEAMs and/or Brightspace.
Instructors will be assigned to specific classes and learning activities based on availability and content expertise, which will be detailed in the letter of appointment.
Description of the duties:
o Teach designated topics, aligning learning activities, resources, and assessments with learning objectives
o Contribute to formative or summative assessment of student learning in designated course topics
o Promote a professional environment for safe and effective student learning.
